    Great sound quality, but uncomfortable (for me)

    • Written by from Smartsville

    I got these earbuds with my new iPhone, and the sound quality is amazing, just as good as my $20 pair. (I shop for bargains when it comes to earbuds at least.) I remember when Apple's earbuds were awful and tinny, and I have to say they've come pretty far. The only thing is that they're pretty uncomfortable. I've seen a lot of people saying they feel great, so I think it's just people with certain ear shapes. I would recommend these, but certainly not for $30, when you can get just as good a pair with a more comfortable fit for everybody for $20 or about the same price.

    Good fit and sound, but don't hold up to sweat

    • Written by from Redding

    I wear the EarPods for running. They are comfortable (even when running for 3-4 hours) and have awesome sound quality, but they have a serious design flaw for athletes. If you sweat while wearing them, the sweat runs down the cable and into the remote, causing it to short out. I have gone through 2 pairs so far- first, the remote stops working and ultimately, the right earbud (the one with the remote) goes silent. It would be nice if Apple would either make the remote more durable or offer the EarPods without a remote at all.

    Good earbuds, junky build quality

    • Written by from Toronto

    These earbuds came with the phone I purchased in September 2014. The sound was an improvement over previous incarnations of earbuds however after dropping the phone with the 'buds plugged in, the connector broke free of the cable. For $35 Apple should put a bit more quality into their products.

    Okay headphones

    • Written by from warner robins

    These headphones sound very good. The bass is pretty nice. The first few days of me using them they have made my ears hurt and sore. I hope they fix this in the next gen of headphones.

    Not worth the money.

    • Written by from Livermore Falls

    I would love these earpods if they weren't so poorly made. The wire always falls apart and then I lose sound, I may as well buy the cheap $10 ones you can get at any store.

    great sound but bad connector

    • Written by from Charlotte

    The new design earbuds sound really good but now the third pair that I have purchased have the same connector problems. When plugged in they make popping and clicking sounds. I would just twist them until they sound normal. But now two out of three pairs do not work at all.

    i love these headphones a lot and use them daily, very comfortable. The only problem i've had with these is how the main speaker on the left earbud blows out. My third pair has already blown out on the left one and about to go to my 4th pair that came with my iPhone 6. That should probably get looked into.

    i have had my earpods for a long time and they have started to fall apart and break but that is my fault because i have not been taking care of them
    the best quality of these earpods
    i can wear them for HOURS and not even get tired of them , sadly i broke the part where it separates the right earpod from the left :( it hanging on by a few wires but it is so worth the price and they have lasted long than any other pair of headphones i've had :)

    Great Headphones but they break often!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I love these headphones. Great sound for the size plus the portability and design are excellent. My main problem is, I've had the right ear bud speaker fail on 3 seperate pairs within one year! That's $90 that I've put into the Apple earpods this year. I'm very gentle with them yet they seem destine to break around 4 months if you use them daily. But only the right speaker will break, which will torture you as you to debate on returning them to the genius bar or investing in a different brand.

    Reduced Quality

    When these came out they had a nice high quality cable. Now they very thin and prone to easy damage.

    Great if you're committed to spending $30 once a year.

    • Written by from Saint Albans

    I was satisfied with the quality of sound, remote functions and microphone of these headphones.

    The problem is (like with most apple accessories including chargers and the like), they aren't built to last. During the one year warranty, I replaced these headphones twice. And now that I'm out of warranty by a few months, this third pair (that I technically did not have for a year since they were a replacement), is not functioning and I'll have to spend another $30.

    If you're willing to deal with apple's tendency to sell products that fall apart, just make sure you buy these headphones online so that when you make the journey to the apple store, you can get them replaced the 2+ times you'll need to during the year.

    Sound good. buuuuut....

    • Written by from culiacan

    Firstly the sound quality is way to better than the previous earbuds. Great bass and bright tones, not the best, but still pretty good for a pair of earbuds that came on the box with the phone.
    Now the bad stuff:
    The quality materials.
    The EarPods feels cheap and its about time till they stop working.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from New Brighton

    I bought an IPhone barely 2 months ago and these came with them. I was excited to try them out and they worked perfectly up until now. I don't know if I was expecting too much wanting them to last for more then barely two months? Least to say, I was disappointed. I won't be buying from Apple again as their products keep failing me.

    I have had these headphones for 6 months they were the greatest pair I've ever had. Until about 20 minutes ago when the right ear just stopped working. I'm very disappointed in them.

    Sounds great but too delicate

    • Written by from Calgary

    I bought these headphones because they are very comfortable to put in my ears but within a couple of months, the button broke and the sounds are dramatically reduced, I have to turn on the volume really loud to hear my music. Got it exchanged but the new one almost broke in the matter of days, just a light crush and the shell torn apart, I can actually see the wires inside but thank god nothing happened to the sound. Another problem that I myself have had and others have telling me about is that the headphones keep changing the music and sometimes play it whenever it wants, and the sounds got really muffled too, told that to those apple technician but they didn't believe me :(

    THESE HEADPHONES ARE EXTREMELY FRAGILE!!!

    • Written by from Aurora

    I love the sound quality of the headphones. They feel great in your ear and the sound quality is great. But they are EXTREMELY fragile. I've barely had mine for six months and already the right earphone has a crack in it, and the sound is a bit 'un-balanced' because of the right earphone. And my brother, who takes better care of his headphones than I do, accidentally put them in the laundry. Nothing to worry about, right? WRONG! Now both headphones have blue stains on it AND the right headphone is completely cracked and broken (still works better than my headphones, but the right headphone is EXTREMELY uncomfortable in your ear. So I just have to give it 3 stars. The sound quality is great, but they are extremely fragile.
